BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 A.M.) – Minutes ago, an Israeli warplane conducted an airstrike over the western countryside of Damascus, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the Qalamoun Mountains near the Lebanese border.
A Syrian Army source told Al-Masdar this morning that the Israeli warplane had crossed into Syria after flying over Lebanon’s ‘Arsal Barrens, where both Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS) are headquartered in the eastern Beqa’a Governorate.
The Syrian Army source added that the specific location of the attack was in the
Jard Nalhleh Al-Quteifah area of the Qalamoun Mountains.
No casualties have been reported to Al-Masdar at this time.
This morning’s airstrike comes just one month after Israeli warplanes targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s positions inside the Golan Heights region of the Al-Quneitra Governorate.
Correction: Israeli warplane flew over Jaroud Nahleh, but the airstrike was conducted in Al-Quteibah. Jaroud Nahleh is in the ‘Arsal Municipality of Lebanon.
